Our Mission

The Weathervane Foundation, Inc., a Texas Non-Profit Corporation, maintains a two-fold mission. First is our commitment to support breast cancer patients at the local level, especially with resource libraries within a clinic or hospital setting. Second, and most important, is our determined dedication to research with our genomic studies laboratory being established to identify the cause which can lead to the cure.

The Weathervane Foundation was founded in 2004 by Fran Padgett. Although privately supporting and contributing to worthwhile causes throughout her life, after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, Fran began a new crusade -- a mission to provide funding for research into the cause and cure for breast cancer. An artist and author, Fran began donating a portion of all sales to breast cancer causes, and in 2004 founded The Weathervane Foundation to facilitate and direct donations toward specific breast cancer research.
